Palpitations and insomnia

I've had my device for ten days and it seems to be working fine.  However, I have not had a good night's sleep since and at night I get low palpitations on the RIGHT side of my chest.  I can't see my cardiologist until January 10 and wondered if anyone had exeprienced either of these symptoms.

I do remember several weeks post op experiencing some palpitations as well, my heart felt like it was racing. What I did was take deep breathes to come down because it’s kind of nerve wrecking to experience. If you feel it’s overwhelming contact your cardiologist. As for the insomnia didn’t have that issue. Good luck and it will get better.

First off if you feel something is really wrong go to the ER.

10 days is still pretty early to expect to sleep well.  Every night should get a little better.

The palpitations, does it feel like your chest/belly muscles are beating with your heart?  Or is it that you just get hard beats?  Is it only when you are laying on that side, etc?  

Even if you are not scheduled to visit you should be able to call and talk to someone a nurse practitioner or one of the docs...
